Look at the non-underlined part of the sentence. It's uses 'has' and therefore, the use of had been is incorrect. Statement choice with Present perfect verb tense is the right one. Also 'during' is correctly compared to 'any other time' in option C.

The sentence needs a present perfect tense since such involvements have been happening till the present.

Also, the use of 'any other time' instead of 'any time' is crucial, otherwise it would also include those last few years, which we do not want!

I was confused between B and C. I thought B was correct because it said HAD which goes with LAST YEAR. I thought C, which said HAVE means it is still happening which is wrong.

I would appreciate any clarification on this.
